The Young Entrepreneur’s Guide: Navigating Business in Your 20s, by Zayn

Howsit, dreamers! Zayn here, back at it to inspire you with entrepreneurship tips and lessons from my journey, being a young businessman in my 20s. And you know what? You’ll need to listen closely, youngsters, because age is your superpower!

Passion is Your Fuel

First things first, passion is your fuel. It’s what keeps you burning the midnight oil, especially when you’re starting out. For me, it’s all about fashion, and that’s why I’m setting up my own clothing production company, InternationalT. When you’re passionate about your venture, the hard work becomes an adventure, not a chore.

Learning is Earning

Don’t be afraid to get your hands dirty and learn from others, from internships to job shadowing. I’ve learned the ropes by getting hands-on experience in various companies. This not only boosts your knowledge but also introduces you to potential mentors and lifelong connections. Trust me, the experience is a treasure trove of wisdom.

Think Big, Start Small

Look, it’s essential to have a grand vision, but you don’t need to conquer the world in a day. I’ve taken my baby steps with the help of my supportive parents. Don’t shy away from seeking financial support from your family or loans when needed. Just make sure you have a solid plan to pay it back!

Build a Brand, Not Just a Business

In the age of Instagram and TikTok, your brand is your identity. Focus on crafting a unique brand story, something that resonates with your audience. For example, I’m all about creating stylish and sustainable t-shirts. The story behind your brand can be a game-changer.

Networking is Non-Negotiable

The power of networking is everything. Connect with like-minded individuals, attend events, and engage in online communities. You’ll be surprised by the opportunities that come your way just by building meaningful relationships.


Stay Resilient

Entrepreneurship isn’t all sunshine and rainbows. There will be setbacks, and sometimes it’ll feel like you’re climbing Everest. But, as they say, tough times don’t last, but tough people do. Stay resilient, keep adapting, and always learn from your mistakes.

So, to all you aspiring young entrepreneurs out there, remember that your 20s are the perfect time to kickstart your dreams. Keep that fire of passion burning, learn from every experience, and be fearless in your pursuit. With the right mix of enthusiasm, hard work, and a sprinkle of optimism, you can achieve anything. Here’s to our entrepreneurial journeys – they may be tough, but they’re always worth it.
